"Section 1. PURPOSE; FINDINGS.

 

The legislature finds that construction of a new football stadium by the Board of Regents of the University of Minnesota on the University's east bank campus in the city of Minneapolis serves statewide public purposes. The legislature finds that the public purposes served include, but are not limited to, providing an on-campus outdoor intercollegiate football stadium as a part of the public amenities for Minnesota's citizens, enhancing the enjoyment of its citizens, and enhancing the University experience for students, alumni, faculty, staff, and other supporters of the University. The legislature finds that the University intends to join together with its students, alumni, faculty, staff, and other supporters to raise funds to build a stadium to return college football to the University campus. Further, the legislature finds that construction of a University of Minnesota football stadium should be supported by the state and that the support should not detract from or be a substitute for other operating and capital support by the state for the University; however, state financial support for the stadium should be conditioned upon the University providing for payment of a significant portion of the stadium's cost from nonstate general revenue fund sources. The purpose of this act is to provide a firm 50 percent level of funding for a new University football stadium to be constructed and owned by the Regents of the University of Minnesota.

 

Sec. 2. DEFINITIONS.

 

Subdivision 1. Applicability. The definitions in this section apply to sections 2 to 7.

 

Subd. 2. Commissioner. "Commissioner" means the commissioner of finance.


Journal of the House - 82nd Day - Thursday, March 30, 2006 - Top of Page 5913

Subd. 7. Permitted University uses. "Permitted University uses" means University educational, research, outreach, scientific and agricultural uses including, undiminished, all of the present uses of the University land, all of the present uses of University real property that adjoins the University land, all similar uses made of comparable property by other land grant universities, any uses related to the foregoing uses, and the making of improvements incidental to any such uses.

 

Subd. 8. Other permitted uses. "Other permitted uses" means agricultural, outdoor recreational and open space management uses, and the making of improvements incidental to any such uses, provided such improvements have been agreed to in writing by the University and the commissioner of natural resources.

 

Subd. 9. Prohibited uses. "Prohibited uses" means use of the University land for residential, commercial, or industrial uses, unless those uses are permitted by this act, or are presently being conducted under existing University leases, easements or use agreements or are utility uses within defined corridors.

 

Sec. 3. ACTIVITIES; CONTRACTS.

 

The legislature recognizes that the board has all powers necessary or convenient for designing, constructing, equipping, improving, controlling, operating, and maintaining the stadium and may enter into contracts that are in its judgment in the best interests of the public for those purposes. Notwithstanding contrary law, the board may adopt the fair and competitive design and construction procurement procedures in connection with the stadium that it considers to be in the public interest.

 

Sec. 4. CONDITIONS FOR PAYMENT TO UNIVERSITY.

 

Before the commissioner may make the first payment to the board authorized in this section the commissioner must certify that the board has received at least $124,000,000 in pledges, gifts, sponsorships, and other nonstate general fund revenue support for the construction of the stadium. On July 1 of each year after certification by the commissioner, but no earlier than July 1, 2007, and for so long thereafter as any bonds issued by the board for the construction of the stadium are outstanding, the state must transfer to the board up to $9,400,000 to reimburse the board for its stadium costs, provided that bonds issued to pay the state's share of such costs shall not exceed $124,000,000. Up to $9,400,000 is appropriated annually from the general fund for the purpose of this section. The board must certify to the commissioner the amount of the annual payments of principal and interest required to service bonds issued by the University for the construction of the stadium, and the actual amount of the state's annual payment to the University shall equal the amount required to service the bonds representing the state's share of such costs. Except to the extent of the annual appropriation described in this section, the state is not required to pay any part of the cost of designing or constructing the stadium.


Journal of the House - 82nd Day - Thursday, March 30, 2006 - Top of Page 5914

Sec. 6. LAND PROTECTION AND TRANSFER.

 

Subdivision 1. Land protection. The obligation of the state of Minnesota to make the payments required under section 4 herein is expressly conditioned upon the University's covenant in perpetuity, subject to subdivision 3, limiting the use of the University land to the permitted University uses and the other permitted uses and proscribing the use of the University land for any of the prohibited uses. A declaration imposing such restrictions and granting to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources the right to enforce the same which has been executed by the University and filed in the Office of the Dakota County Recorder shall satisfy this condition. In furtherance of the purposes of this subdivision, the University and Department of Natural Resources shall promptly endeavor to enter into a joint powers agreement pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, section 471.59, or a conservation easement held by a qualified conservation organization or by a conservation easement holder as described in applicable Minnesota law embodying such restrictions, which agreement or easement shall provide for cooperative oversight of the use of the University land. Nothing herein or in any declaration, agreement, or easement made or entered into pursuant hereto shall impair the rights of third parties under presently existing leases, easements, or use agreements. Except as limited in any declaration, agreement, or conservation easement made, entered into, or granted as provided above, the rights of University with respect to the University land are not to be affected by this section.

 

Subd. 2. Land transfer. Not later than the date on which the state of Minnesota makes the last of the payments required under section 4, the Regents of the University of Minnesota shall offer to convey the University land to the state of Minnesota in its "as is" condition by quit claim for the sum of $1. Upon agreement of the University and the state, all or part of the University land may be transferred to another governmental unit of the state. Any conveyance shall be subject to the perpetual right of the University to use the University land for the permitted University uses and to the rights of third parties under presently existing leases, easements, and use agreements. The instruments of transfer shall otherwise limit the use of the University land to the other permitted uses and subject such uses to such restrictions as may be provided in any agreement between the University and state or any conservation easement granted pursuant to subdivision 1, as applicable and proscribe its use for the prohibited purposes. The University of Minnesota shall have the right to enforce such limitations and restrictions.

 

Subd. 3. Termination of use restrictions. In the event the state of Minnesota fails to make any payment required by section 4, the foregoing restrictions on University's use of the University land, any declaration, agreement, or conservation easement containing such restrictions and the University's obligation to offer the University land to the state of Minnesota shall be null and void.

 

Sec. 7. [473.5955] TERMINATION OF LEASE.

 

The lease between the Regents of the University of Minnesota and the commission dated May 19, 1982, that requires the University of Minnesota football team to play its home football games at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome until July 1, 2012, may be terminated by the board effective on or after the date designated by the board as the date of completion of the stadium on the University of Minnesota's east bank campus in the city of Minneapolis.

"Section 1. Minnesota Statutes 2004, section 148.06, subdivision 1, is amended to read:

 

Subdivision 1. License required; qualifications. No person shall practice chiropractic in this state without first being licensed by the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners. The applicant shall have earned at least one-half of all academic credits required for awarding of a baccalaureate degree from the University of Minnesota, or other university, college, or community college of equal standing, in subject matter determined by the board, and taken a four-year resident course of at least eight months each in a school or college of chiropractic or in a chiropractic program that is accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education, holds a recognition agreement with the Council on Chiropractic Education, or is accredited by an agency approved by the United States Office of Education or their successors as of January 1, 1988. The board may issue licenses to practice chiropractic without compliance with prechiropractic or academic requirements listed above if in the opinion of the board the applicant has the qualifications equivalent to those required of other applicants, the applicant satisfactorily passes written and practical examinations as required by the Board of Chiropractic Examiners, and the applicant is a graduate of a college of chiropractic with a reciprocal recognition agreement with the Council on Chiropractic Education as of January 1, 1988. The board may recommend a two-year prechiropractic course of instruction to any university, college, or community college which in its judgment would satisfy the academic prerequisite for licensure as established by this section.

 

An examination for a license shall be in writing and shall include testing in:

 

(a) The basic sciences including but not limited to anatomy, physiology, bacteriology, pathology, hygiene, and chemistry as related to the human body or mind;

 

(b) The clinical sciences including but not limited to the science and art of chiropractic, chiropractic physiotherapy, diagnosis, roentgenology, and nutrition; and

 

(c) Professional ethics and any other subjects that the board may deem advisable.


Journal of the House - 82nd Day - Thursday, March 30, 2006 - Top of Page 5916

The board may consider a valid certificate of examination from the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners as evidence of compliance with the examination requirements of this subdivision. The applicant shall be required to give practical demonstration in vertebral palpation, neurology, adjusting and any other subject that the board may deem advisable. A license, countersigned by the members of the board and authenticated by the seal thereof, shall be granted to each applicant who correctly answers 75 percent of the questions propounded in each of the subjects required by this subdivision and meets the standards of practical demonstration established by the board. Each application shall be accompanied by a fee set by the board. The fee shall not be returned but the applicant may, within one year, apply for examination without the payment of an additional fee. The board may grant a license to an applicant who holds a valid license to practice chiropractic issued by the appropriate licensing board of another state, provided the applicant meets the other requirements of this section and satisfactorily passes a practical examination approved by the board. The burden of proof is on the applicant to demonstrate these qualifications or satisfaction of these requirements."
